To unearth a killer, you have to get your fingernails dirty. Archaeology Professor Mari Duggins is adjusting to life as a single mom, but she's caught between the pull of her former flame and her ex-husband. When her colleague is murdered and her ex is accused of stealing an Egyptian artifact, Mari interferes in the FBI investigation, compelled to prove the innocence of her children's father. Soon she is buried deep in suspects. Her old flame, her student and tenant, the office secretary. No one is who they appear to be, and she begins to wonder where her loyalty and true affections lie. Mari Duggins' life caves in as she tries to excavate the truth, but realizes only God can dig her out of the hole she's created. Will Mari sort through her muddled feelings and put her trust in someone else? Or will the truth bury her alive?
